NY Rangers Game 55 Open Thread: Actually play hockey?

The Rangers are in Boston to close out the season over the next three games. These two games were supposed to have some meaning, but injuries and poor play derailed any playoff hopes. Hockey has been stress free, for the most part, over the last three years. So tonight is no different, at least in my view.

I’m intrigued to see how Tim Gettinger looks tonight. He’s played very well in Hartford, and he has earned this call up. That said, the Rangers are without most of their lineup tonight, so let’s hope this isn’t a blood bath.

At the very least, let’s hope the circus has left town and actual hockey is played.

  • Just heard Drury on Michael Kaye….’we need to have our players know what their roles are from the drop of the puck” If that is not an indictment of the coach, I don’t know what is. Let the speculation begin……

  • Valiquette is in a good mood …….Wonder if Sam Rosen will be also …………………………………….Maybe not as much ………………. (Very ……..very TIGHT with JD ) .

      • We will never know what Sam was thinking (or saying ) the first 10 minutes after he found out about about JD’s fate . But it may not have been organization-friendly thoughts or words .

  • Man, I don’t think Barron is ever going back to Hartford, truly plays a 200 foot game. Great skating, strong on the puck.
